Donkey Field Car Park, The Wrekin
The proposed car park consists of 131 spaces (implemented over two phases), surfaced with permeable paving filled with gravel or seeded. It is located on a site which adjoins the Shropshire Hills AONB boundary at the foot of The Wrekin which receives 120,000 visitors per annum. The sensitively designed layout incorporates a well-conceived SuDs drainage scheme designed in close collaboration with drainage engineers. The car parking bays are located on a series of terraces set into the sloping site to ensure their visibility is generally limited to short range glimpsed views. The earthworks have been carefully configured to ensure that no excavated material will need to be removed off-site.
